kidmartinek (4664) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Rich, clear golden color with tons of bubbles and a pure white head. Great skunky smell on the pour. Aroma smells like a crisp mild dutch pilsener. Quite delicious. Quick, quite bitter finish. Pretty darn good. Delicious, refreshing, sessionable, and inexpensive. Nice foamy white lace on the glass, half way down.

well. if you have ever had a heineken that was a touch past its drinking date- then you have Holland Import. a simple crisp skunk grass flavour and smell. annoying if you donít to the pound town thing. but decent for the price. less than 5 bucks with tax. and being a rather refined hobo- i likes this. now, pass me my pickle jar, i have to make a deposit around back....

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2015 Pours a golden color. Very clear. About two fingers head. Some lacing retention.

Aroma is hops. Not really picking up any malt. Doesnít smell overly sweet.

Taste is heavy on grassy hops. Itís not overly hoppy, but certainly a pilsener. Bitter, but I look for a little something on the finish to balance it out. Itís a little metallic. It might also be a tiny bit sweet in there too.

Mouthfeel is very crisp and clean. Itís pretty dry. Thereís something about it that makes me want a drink of water after each sip. Iíve never experienced that before when drinking a beer.

Overall, I like it. Itís worth it for the price. I read some of the reviews and itís not like Heineken. When you factor in the price, this is a lot better than Heineken. Itís pretty cheap, and itís pretty good. So I would certainly buy this again.

llcooldave (1188) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Drinkable... nice golden color in the glass. Grassy hoppy note with a hint of malty sweetness in the aftertaste. Same grassy hops not in the aroma. Overall, a drinkable brew, nothing exciting but not offensive.

Frank (4007) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2015
This is basically fake Heineken and I am OK w/ that. It is a pale lager in the same style as a can of carbonated water. There is maybe a little bit of malt or grain but overall this is very mild, medium bodied w/ moderate carbonation. This is fairly well forgettable but it is at least not foul.

Benzai (14076) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2011
From 33cl can. Clear yellow / golden color, small white head. Smell malts and cardboard. A bit watery. Tastes like a weak pilsener: malts and just slightly bitter. Not really good.

Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a clear gold with small white head. The aroma is strong skunk and grass. Thin mouth, corn malt, like a heineken clone, decent.
